St. Canice Cathedral Kilkenny is walking distance from Kilkenny Castle in Ireland. Its main feature is the 9th century “Round Tower”. It is one of only 3 round towers in Ireland that you can still climb to the top. It is not an easy climb so if you are not sure of foot, I wouldn’t try it.

St. Canice Cathedral itself dates from the 13th century. It is the second longest cathedral in Ireland, second only to St. Partick’s in Dublin. The beauty of Kilkenny is that once there you can see pretty much everything on foot. We started our day at Kilkenny Castle, then Smithwick’s Brewery, Rothe House & Garden and ended the day at St. Canice Cathedral. All can be found near or on High Street. As you can see, the cathedral is beautiful and you can get some amazing views of Kilkenny from the top of the Round Tower.

Unlike most travel bloggers that travel full time, we have to balance full time jobs, and elementary school age daughter. We definitely don't travel as much as we would like, but we think our situation is closer to what most travelers are in themselves.
Our family currently lives and loves the Austin, Texas area of the United States. We have lived in many states and even internationally.
